NEW!  Join the Secret Technology Club

If you think that technology power‐users have a whole bunch of “secret” tricks and shortcuts, you might be right. We’ve been immersed in computer‐use for decades now, but very few of us have had much formal training. We learn through trial and error, but it’s difficult to learn what you don’t know exists!  Years of working in professional development and the software industry have given me a selection of random tricks and tips about browsers, software, productivity hacks, secrets to speed up your grading, and really useful phone apps that many average (and even above average) computer users do not know. If you suspect you’ve fallen behind and would like to fill some of those silly technology gaps, this online workshop is for you. You too can become a member of the “Secret Technology Club” by learning and sharing these secret technology handshakes.

Designing and Implementing an Effective Online Course 

Designing and teaching a fully online class has differences from moving a course to remote instruction. There is much more involved to move all content, instruction, and interaction to an online modality. Maria Andersen is an expert at this and is offering a full day of live online workshops to support teachers who will be teaching an online course or already do but want to increase engagement and improve outcomes.
